In 1974, the BLOCK company began trading in ophthalmic equipment and instruments. In the same year the assortment was extended by furnishings. From that time on, ophthalmologists and opticians were offered the entire range of ophthalmic equipment and instruments, as well as complete interior furnishings such as floor coverings, curtains and furniture, sanitary objects, tiles, lamps, partition walls, doors and ceilings. In addition, a separate design and customer service department was created. With this step, BLOCK was one of the first companies in the ophthalmic industry in Germany to specialize in complete furnishings and equipment for ophthalmologists and optometrists.

Over the years, in cooperation with ophthalmologists and opticians BLOCK quality units such as CT, Vario, Duoline, Titan, Opal, Onyx, Jade, Solitair or – as the latest member of a rich product range – the refraction unit Innovario In addition, the company BLOCK produces phoropter splints, phoropter arms, 


electrical equipment racks, mirror systems and contact lens tables. In addition, the production of individual furniture and registration counters, filing cabinets, sideboards, desks and desk substructures adapted to customer requirements is of great importance.

The number of employees in the BLOCK Group with sales, administration and production has – in line with its development – grown considerably since the early years. Engineers, mechatronics technicians, designers, programmers, technicians, mechanics, electronics technicians and carpenters help to ensure that the entire BLOCK product range is manufactured to first-class quality. The commercial staff ensure smooth, perfectly organized sales both at home and abroad. An in-house development and production department creates technically and ergonomically innovative concepts and takes care of their realization. In cooperation with employed and freelance architects and designers, trend-setting solutions are created.
